  • Following Christian Michel's extradition to India, a spooked Vijay Mallya has tweeted saying that he has been unfairly treated by the politicians and the media
  • He has said that he was being unfairly treated by the authorities
  • He even said he has offered to pay 100% of the principal amount to the banks

Following Christian Michel's extradition to India, a spooked Vijay Mallya has tweeted saying that he has been unfairly treated by the politicians and the media. Hours after Michel was brought to India, Mallya began a series of tweet claiming he was being unfairly treated by the authorities, and speaking about his offer to pay 100% of the principal amount to the banks.

The ruling in Vijay Mallya's extradition is likely to be given on December 10 by the Westminster Magistrate’s Court in London.

Christian Michel was extradited to India on Tuesday night. The CBI took his custody soon after.

On Wednesday, Michel will be taken to the court and produced in front of a special judge. The CBI has asked the court to be allow an in-camera hearing for Michel.

Michel was a middleman in the deal to acquire choppers to be used for VVIPs in India that underwent numerous and questionable changes during the UPA regime, including allegations that the criteria were changed to suit a particular company. He may also hold the key to deciphering a notebook recovered in the probe into the AgustaWestland 'Choppergate' scam that contained numerous initials alongside what appeared to be sums of money.
